About his work\, Rich ard states that\, 'We live in a world obsessed by beauty and perfection\, b y facades we have set up to hide who we really are\, our weaknesses\, our f eelings\, our fears. We all live a double life: our self which attempts sim ply to exist and our ego which hides and suppresses it through fear.'

Sara A.Tremblay holds several de grees in photography\, and is currently completing her MFA at Concordia Uni versity\, Montreal\, Canada. Using photography\, drawing\, performance\, vi deo\, and sculpture\, Tremblay documents her personal experience of being p laces and seeing things through the traces and artifacts she collects. She gives herself challenges\, and plays with the notion of the infinite and th e impossible using simple ideas. She either succeeds or fails. Her work has been featured in several group and solo exhibitions in galleries around Qu ebec\, Ontario and in Gothenburg (Sweden)\, where she spent half a year on an academic exchange program during her masters. The few Nordic regions she has visited\, deeply inspired her\, and marked a turn in her work. There\, she started to surround herself with circles and spheres\, a form and meta phor that is a current focus in her work. Originally from Charlevoix\, a sm all region in the northeast of Quebec City\, surrounded by mountains and th e Saint Lawrence River\, she now lives in Montreal\, and works in a studio with a nice view on Mount Royal.

Daniel Shipp cur rently lives in Sydney\, Australia where he studied photography at the pres tigious Sydney College of the Arts. He combines a career as a commercial ph otographer with his personal art projects\, often large-scale portrait seri es. These have included studies of rising musicians (Future Classic)\, art college students (250 commissioned portraits)\, characters from the fashion world (Fashion Week Project) in addition to The Y Project\, carried out in conjunction with the Cirque du Soleil/Oxfam. His work combines a passion f or the narrative capabilities of light with an interest in the beauty to be found in the individual face. Daniel is more interested in exploring the ' imperfections' of the everyday face to the so-called 'perfection' of the pr ofessional model. He uses light to seek a certain kind of beauty.

A letter from the curato r:

\n

"Painting is over. Pa inting is making a comeback. Thick paint is dead. Figuration is the future. Abstraction forever. Who can keep up?

\n

For this show I was not interested in the rules - there are too many and they change every day. Instead I wanted to bring together a group of people immersed in the medium of my obsession to create a dialogue about paint - \;across different styles\, approaches and career levels - tha t showcases \;the medium's possibilities. No matter the battle cry of t he moment\, these painters show that painting is alive and well\, current\, compelling and relevant.

\n

Fr om the visceral paint handling of Humberto Poblete-Bustama nte and Eva Rä\;der \;to the calculated applications of Echo Eggebrecht< /em> \;and Gavin Lynch\ ; from the historical vibes of Paul Housley< em> and Felipe Talo to the pop sensibili ties of \;Jason Stopa and Mark Puchala\; from the representations of Bradley Wood and Esteban Cabez a de Baca to the abstractions of Bradley Harms and Russell Tyler\; from the figures of Andre Ethier\, Genieve Figgis and Kyle Scheurmann to the objects of Mathieu Le fevre and Jeanie Riddle - these painters all get to the "heart" of what painting is and can be.&n bsp\;

\n

I'm also very interest ed in the idea of influence. Painting can't exist without it. So I asked ea ch participant to tell me about painters they are looking at and have tried to include some of those people as well (Gavin Lynch begets Echo Eggebrech t\, Andre Ethier begets Mark Puchala\, Humberto Poblete-Bustamante begets F elipe Talo\, and so on). It has \;made for a democratic and organic cur atorial process with unexpected links and dialogues between paintings\, whi ch - for a paint lover like myself - is what this medium is all about.

\n

My thanks to this talented group for participating - I'm excited to be presenting such a diverse and commit ted view of painting to Toronto. Thanks also to Angell Gallery for indulgin g my idea."

Zanele Muholi&rsquo\;s Fac es and Phases aims to address the representation of black lesbian and queer identity\, focusing largely on post-apartheid South Africa. This ongo ing series of large-format black and white photographs includes more than 2 40 portraits\, of which 36 are exhibited to coincide with the celebration o f WorldPride 2014 in Toronto.

As a visual activist for the rig hts of LGBTI (lesbian\, gay\, bisexual\, transgender and intersex) people i n South Africa and beyond\, Muholi endeavours to radically change the conve ntional perception of lesbian and transgender communities\, who suffer from an epidemic of continuous attacks: &ldquo\;corrective&rdquo\; and &ldquo\; curative&rdquo\; rapes\, physical and psychological assaults\, and hate cri mes. Working from and for her own community\, Muholi creates strong\, beaut iful and positive images of empowered individuals. As visual statements\, h er photographs dignify the members of an often hidden\, voiceless and margi nalized population. The verticality and scale of the prints accentuate the resilience of the figures\, purposely confronting the viewers with their sc rutinizing gaze. The powerful images support and promote self-expression an d pride\, shaping and claiming a black lesbian and transgender visibility.< /p> DTEND:20140601 DTSTAMP:20140417T034930 DTSTART:20140501 GEO:43.6577458;-79.3792455 LOCATION:RYERSON IMAGE CENTRE\,33 GOULD STREET \nTORONTO\, ONTARIO SEQUENCE:0 SUMMARY:Faces and Phases\, Zanele Muholi UID:332033 END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT DESCRIPTION:

The work of Stan Douglas affir ms the validity and volatility of photography at this decisive moment in th e history of art and media. The continuous fluctuations in optical technolo gy\, the reduction of images to data and the everyday use of photographs in social media have resulted in challenging questions regarding how images a re made\, used and distributed.

\n

The s tories\, sites and events that Douglas investigates are familiar and histor ically situated. His work explores the vestiges of culture and memory throu gh the mediated experience of photography and film. Frequently\, the images describe the overlooked histories of cultural identity\, displacement and injustice\, revealing an uncanny resemblance to present-day events. Utilizi ng recombinant narratives and pictorial strategies\, Douglas pursues the ef fects of anachronism to inscribe past events onto contemporary contexts. Th e photographs\, employing a labyrinth of invention and meaning\, examine th e technological apparatus from which they are constructed. This is achieved through his discerning attention to photography as both medium and subject .

\n

Stan Douglas&rsquo\;s documentary p hotographs affirm the authenticity of the locations they describe. The laye red meanings these images acquire when presented in the context of fictiona lized historical narratives reposition documentary photography in a paradox ical relationship with other media. The tension between fact and fiction\, a basis for all documentary art\, encourages the spectator to create and pa rticipate in the meaning of the work.

Pairing the evocative ink-stai ned paintings of Mann with Bentley&rsquo\;s mutated historical sculptures b rings to mind Swiss psychiatrist Hermann Rorschach. \; Rorschach&rsquo\ ;s famous ink blots&mdash\;however highly abstracted and non-referential&md ash\;are still catalysts for the human imagination today. \; Both artis ts in this duo exhibition achieve a level of abstraction comparable to his ink blots that inspires a creative response in their viewers\, as the mind seeks to ascribe something recognizable and subjective within these morphin g artworks.

KEITH W. BENTLEY
Be ntley&rsquo\;s distinctive sculptures are easily recognizable by their brig ht yet limited colour palettes\, just-left-of-pop aesthetic\, and unexpecte d use of found objects. \; Born in Vermont\, Keith W. Bentley was raise d in New Brunswick. \; His multi-disciplinary approach reinvents object s (both original and appropriated) by transforming their surface and mass w ith all-over applications of rubber\, fibre and object multiples. \;&nb sp\; Bentley&rsquo\;s accumulations of objects that adorn his figurative su bstrates dramatically morph the ordinary into the exceptional. \; Bentl ey currently resides in Baltimore\, Maryland. \; His works have been ex hibited throughout North America and are currently making their way into pu blic and private collections worldwide\, most recently that of the Delaware Art Museum.

KATHERINE TZU-LANN MANN< br /> Based in Washington\, D.C.\, Katherine Tzu-Lan Mann&rsquo\;s practice integrates adornment with organic\, chaotic forms. \; Her compositions converge around loose stains of colour\, products of chance\; they corners tone fine\, lace-like or cellular patterns\, simultaneously highlighting an d suffocating the ink-stained foundations of the paintings. \; Mann&rsq uo\;s career is liberally peppered with awards\, fellowships and residencie s. Her work can be found in public collections in the USA\, Austria\, and t he United Arab Emirates.

In \;Cloud Cover\ , interdisciplinary Toronto-based artist Joan Kaufman creates ethereal imag es that blur illusion and the natural world. Working in her studio\, Kaufma n fabricates elaborate installations using layers of falling textiles and c arefully modulated lighting. She then employs the primary tools of studio p hotography to simulate a fragmented world\, revealing the mutual vulnerabil ity of humans and nature.

\n

Throughout& nbsp\;Cloud Cover\, Kaufman targets collective anxiety over the en vironmental impact of the twenty-first century. \; The metaphor of the cloud articulates the futility of humanity&rsquo\;s attempts&mdash\;so ofte n at odds&mdash\;to both protect and control the natural world.

It is with great pride that Ga llery Gevik hosts its second solo exhibition for Graham Peacock. \;

\n

Peacock developed an interest in the abs tract art of Mondrian and Malevich\, followed by Rothko and Noland\, and fo und his own voice through this passion.

\n

His mixed media works follow his "process abstractionist" ideals\, which he's able to explore further as a member of the group "New New Painters".& nbsp\;

\n

Peacock pushes the boundaries of abstract art and creates \;sculpture-like paintings through his mani pulation of mixed media. Can you guess some of the elements he uses? (Check out our website for answers.) \;

Graham Peacock has been exhibited both nationally and internationally and we are pleased to once again delight Toronto audiences with his work.   \;

For this exhibition Hovsepian& nbsp\;presents a series of new works that bring together photography\, scul pture and installation\, exploring movement\, abstraction and various conce ptions of the &lsquo\;object.&rsquo\; The photographic works branch from an ongoing series of photograms\, photos made without a camera by placing obj ects directly on photographic paper\, called Haptic Wonders. \ ; The term &ldquo\;haptic&rdquo\; refers to the sense of touch\, pointing t o Hovsepian&rsquo\;s production of these pieces in the darkroom and her mov ing and manipulating various materials in time and space with her hands.&nb sp\;Hovsepian sees these unique works as recording a performance of her bod y in a brief amount of time within a certain amount of space\, further expl oring the physicality of photography. The images will are paired with her&n bsp\;series of multi-media\, wall-based installations called Material G estures\, and \;free-standing sculptures made of bronze a nd wood that develop as a tangent to the photographic works by mimicking th eir shapes and forms.

\n

Many of the wor ks produced for this exhibition were created during a residency in Gallery 44&rsquo\;s wet darkroom in March 2014.

Artist Statement \;

\n

Photogra phy literally means &ldquo\;drawing with light&rdquo\; and thinking about p hotography is central to what I do. \;I am interested in photography an d its ephemera as mark-making tools\, specifically within the dialogue of a bstraction. \;The materiality and limitations of the photographic proce ss are what guides my practice. \;My work develops from a photographic impulse from which I expand and explore the ways photographic imagery can e nter into formal\, sculptural\, and material relevance while maintaining a physicality that relates very naturally to the body &ndash\; more specifica lly to the artist&rsquo\;s hand. \;The question of what IS con sidered photography is continuously posed in my work\, which often has no r eferent and cannot be reproduced. \;The &ldquo\;decisive moment&rdquo\; can be many moments in which their culmination forms the final work. \ ;

\n

Confronting the limits of the photo graphic medium and exploring the nuanced language of abstraction\, this pan el brings together artists whose works mine the fluid categorizations of im age\, material and object.
